Adreno 225 is crashin in eglCreateImageKHR

Hi all,

We're trying to use EGLImages on an Adreno 225 GPU (Qualcomm 8960 SoC) and the stack crashes right in the middle of eglCreateImageKHR with a SIGSEGV.

Here is the code we're using. This code runs fine on Adreno 320, Mali, PowerVR and Tegra GPUs.

EGLDisplay display = eglGetDisplay(EGL_DEFAULT_DISPLAY);
int minor, major;
eglInitialize(display, &major, &minor);

GLint configAttribs[] = {
    EGL_RED_SIZE, 8,

int n;
EGLConfig config;
eglChooseConfig(display, configAttribs, &config, 1, &n);

EGLContext context;
GLint eglContextAttribs[] = { EGL_CONTEXT_CLIENT_VERSION, 1, EGL_NONE };
context = eglCreateContext(display, config, EGL_NO_CONTEXT, eglContextAttribs);

GLint pbufferAttribs[] = { EGL_WIDTH, 540, EGL_HEIGHT, 888, EGL_NONE };
EGLSurface pbuffer;
pbuffer = eglCreatePbufferSurface(display, config, pbufferAttribs);

eglMakeCurrent(display, pbuffer, pbuffer, context);

GLuint tex;
glGenTextures(1, &tex);
glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, tex);
glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_RGBA, 540, 888, 0, GL_RGBA, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, NULL);

EGLImageKHR imageKHR;
                           EGL_GL_TEXTURE_LEVEL_KHR, 0,
                           EGL_NONE };

imageKHR = eglCreateImageKHR(display, context, EGL_GL_TEXTURE_2D_KHR, (EGLClientBuffer)tex, khrAttribList);


And we get the following stack trace:

Are we missing something in image or texture creation ? Is there the known issue ?


Thanks for your help,

Best regards.

Hi Damien..

At first look, the code for calling eglCreatImageKHR seems correct...

1) Try using NULL instead of the khrAttribList (you're using default values, so this should be ok)

2) Try using eglGetCurrentContext(), instead of context

3) Can you confirm glGetError returns GL_NO_ERROR before the call to eglCreateImageKHR?

Hello mhfeldma,

I tryied your 3 suggestions and the behavior is stricly the same. I got the same stack trace the three times ;)

Do you have any other suggestion ?

We're curious which Android versions you are running on (for all devices where this is working and not).  This information should be printed out in the logcat (search for Adreno or eglInitialize). Also let us know what is listed in about phone.

We appreciate the legwork - it's essential to helping to figure out exactly which version/branch the feature is not working on.

The phone only phone where we have the problem is a Motorola Razr M, here are some device information:

System version: 98.14.63.XT907.Verizon.en.US
Build number: smq_vzw-userdebug 35 test-keys
Android version: 4.1.2
Kernel version: 30.31-eng-g06eb01c

The Android version is JellyBean, and we're not facing the issue on the other phones. We tried:

  • Nexus 4 (JellyBean + Adreno 320)
  • Nexus 7 (JellyBean + Tegra3)
  • Galaxy S3 (JellyBean + Mali 400)
  • Galaxy Nexus (JellyBean + PowerVR)

And none of them are failing creating the image.

Here are some traces from graphic stack initialization:

gralloc : using (fd=14)
gralloc : id           = msmfb40_90701
gralloc : xres         = 540 px
gralloc : yres         = 960 px

gralloc : height       = 95 mm (256.673676 dpi)
gralloc : refresh rate = 60.00 Hz

Hi all, We're still facing the same issue but on the Verizon Galaxy S3 always with an Adreno 225. Do you have any information? BR, Damien.

on GS3 using Adreno 225 i do have the same issue.

It seems to me that the EGL_GL_TEXTURE_2D_KHR parameter is not working well on such GPU (compare to other Adreno or even other GPU like MALI PowerVR or NVIDIA.

I'm surprise as the extensions list seems to say it should be supported.


May be we are missing an init or texture passed as parameter is bad (for info on my side i tried multiple formats, multiple size, en even try to generate mimap in case we need the texture to be complete) all the tries drive me to same crash inside eglCreateImageKHR.

Dissassembling the libraries, it seems that the function oglSetBlobFunc access an array to get a function pointer, but that array seems not to be initialized.

Any help would be welcomed as without that it is impossible to share textures between two processes or even between two contexts GLES1.x and GLES 2.0. May be Qualcomm advise another way to share texture than usage of eglImageKHR ?

Thanks in advance for your help.


Best Regards,

continuing investigation its seems working with a GLES 2.0 context. Is it known issue that GLES 1.1 is not working ?

But i would need eglCreateImageKHR working with GLES 1.1. Any Workaround is welcomed.
